Forum’s Objectives

The Forum is open to all young professionals, from fresh graduates through to those with more advanced early careers.

The aim of the Young Professionals Forum is:

  • To act as an access route and a means to integrate young professionals in the British business community in Beijing
  • To assist young professionals in developing their general understanding and professional knowledge of China
  • To provide a platform for members to share support, advice, and information

The Forum additionally offers the Young Professionals Development Programme, a new fellowship initiative which aims to elevate young professionals’ key employability skills through a series of participatory workshops led by hand-selected expert mentors.

The Young Professionals Development Programme

The Young Professionals Forum is thrilled to announce the opening of applications to the Young Professionals Development Programme, a new fellowship initiative from the British Chamber of Commerce in China that aims to create globally competitive individuals. The programme consists of four interactive workshops themed around Leadership, Communication, Creativity and Entrepreneurship, each facilitated by a pair of partner mentors from a wide range of industries with tremendous expertise in their fields.


The forum is chaired by Nathan Cornwell.


The emergence of China as a world leader has led increasing numbers of young British professionals to consider and to take up early-career positions in the country. The Young Professionals Forum aims to provide both an on-the-ground and an online sphere in which young professionals can be connected and informed, and find guidance and support.
